We’ve got some helpful tips and tricks for you, to help you tackle your Spring Cleaning this year. So get your pens out, it's time to start writing your Spring Cleaning checklist, with these 6 helpful Spring Cleaning tips - and get yourself ahead of the Spring Cleaning schedule!
1. Make the Switch to All Natural Cleaning Products
A new season brings a fresh start - and since Spring is when we do the biggest deep clean of our homes in Canada, it’s the perfect time to make the switch to all natural, non-toxic home cleaning products. Many traditional home cleaning products contain chemicals that can create fumes and toxic air pollutants in our homes. So kick your old cleaners to the curb, it’s time to Spring clean them from your home. This year, get into the good habit of cleaning your home with ethical, environmentally friendly cleaning products that are safe for your health, your pets health, and the environment. Choose natural cleaning products from trusted eco-friendly brands like Mrs. Meyer’s, method, and Aunt Fannie’s, which are all made from safe, non-toxic, plant-derived ingredients. You’ll love just how effective these brands are at keeping your home clean, and also safe, that we know you won’t ever go back to your old home cleaners again.
2. Create a Schedule to Tackle Your Spring Cleaning List
Spring Cleaning can be an overwhelming task to tackle! The best way to tackle your Spring Cleaning is to organize yourself first by making a cleaning list of all the things that you need to get done. Schedule tasks and duties based on each room in your home, and do your Spring Cleaning room by room to be the most effective. You can also assign each room a priority, so you know which areas you need to clean first. If you have anyone else in your household who is old enough to contribute to the cleaning, get them involved as well to help scratch tasks off your Spring Cleaning to-do list! Having a plan for your Spring Cleaning can make the job seem less daunting and will leave you feeling organized. A Spring Cleaning checklist can be a helpful way to make your Spring Cleaning quick and effective .
3. Invest in a Natural All-Purpose Cleaner
You’ll be surprised with what an all-purpose cleaner can do; and all the things in your home you can clean with just one bottle! We believe that every home needs an all-purpose cleaner, since it’s the easiest and most efficient way to tackle general cleaning tasks - but because you’ll be using it for multiple surfaces and areas of your home, it's important to make sure that the all-purpose cleaner you choose is effective, while also being safe, natural and non-toxic as well. At Breezily, we’re a big fan of Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds All-Purpose Cleaner, not only because it is effective in multiple areas of your home, but also because its concentrated formula is made from essential oils and natural cleaning agents that are gentle on your skin and your home. Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds All-Purpose Cleaner is made without any synthetic dyes, fragrances or toxic chemicals. The formula is also biodegradable, making it safer for the planet as well. With Dr. Bronners Sal Suds, you can tackle almost everything on your Spring Cleaning list, from your toilets to your floors to your counters to windows and your car, with just one bottle! Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds makes your Spring Cleaning quick, easy and also safe!
4. Buy some Air-Purifying Houseplants to Clean the Air in your Home
In addition to opening up your windows and airing out the musty, stale odor in your home, adding some greenery and houseplants to various areas of your home is another, effective way to clean and purify the air in your home. This is because plants are natural air purifiers, which can reduce the amount of pollutants and toxins in your home, caused by many common household items, including your living room rug, gas stove, wallpaper, and furnace, to name a few. In the Winter months we often have our windows closed as well, and so air circulation is reduced, causing the pollutants in our home to build up. While we suggest buying houseplants as a tip for Spring Cleaning, it is a good idea to have them in your home year round! They also add some vibrant greenery to your space as well. Check out our blog post to learn more about the benefits of having air purifying plants in your home!
5. Implement a Good Cleaning Routine Year Round
Now, just because you tackled your Spring Cleaning, it doesn't mean the work stops there! Keeping your home clean year round is important too and that starts with implementing a cleaning schedule. Scheduling chores throughout the week or keeping up with certain cleaning tasks, can minimize the amount of work you have to do on the weekends. Getting into a good cleaning routine and developing efficient cleaning habits, is an effective way to keep yourself on track of your cleaning tasks, while also minimizing the amount of cleaning you have to do in general. Staying on top of your home cleaning is the best way to ensure you have a fresh, clean home year round.
6. Sign Up for a Monthly Service and Never Run Out of Natural Cleaning Products
